Our sandbagging stations at Burleigh Heads and Bilinga are now open

They are located at:

Signage is on site to direct motorists to the sandbagging stations.

Please drive carefully and to the conditions.

 It is important to note that sandbags can reduce the impact of flooding if they’re placed correctly in appropriate locations around property. They are not waterproof and will not stop the water completely.

Queensland State Emergency Services (SES) offer a useful instructional video on how to sandbag your home and business.
